In the islands of the Hyde Hall parking lot are three large American Ash {Fraxinus americana} with beautiful fall foliage. These trees are always our first large trees to show their fall foliage and drop their leaves. Along both sides of Highland St. are several plantings of Dwarf Korean Lilacs {Syringa meyeri ‘Palibin} that have turned a deep shade of purple. On the west side of Lamson Library is a large ‘Blue Maid’ Holly {Ilex x meservae ‘Blue Maid’} that has a nice crop of red fruit. This evergreen shrub is the closest hardy variety to the traditional American Holly that we can grow in Plymouth. The male plant [necessary for pollination] is located to the right of the steps at the north entrance to Pemigewasset Hall.
